Our Statement of Faith
In essential beliefs we have unity
In non-essential beliefs we have liberty
In all our beliefs we show love
We believe that God exists eternally as the one true and living God and that He manifests Himself in three persons...God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
|I Peter 2:2
|Genesis 1:1, 26, 27, 3:22|
About Jesus Christ (Son of God):
We believe that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, was crucified, buried, and rose bodily from the grave and will come again to this world to reign in righteousness.
|I Thessalonians 4:16-17|
About the Holy Spirit:
We believe that a person is baptized by the Holy Spirit into the Body of Christ at the time of conversion; this baptism and subsequent fillings result in a believer being filled and supernaturally empowered for service through spiritual gifts.
|I Corinthians 12:13|
About the Bible:
We believe that the Bible is our supreme authority, and it is sufficient as our only rule of faith and practice. The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit and it is truth without any mixture of error.
|II Timothy 3:16|
|Psalm 119:105, 160|
|2 Peter 1:20-21|
We believe that forgiveness of sin, salvation, and new life is made possible by the death of Jesus Christ on the cross. This salvation is by grace, through faith, and by the appropriation of the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
We believe there shall be a resurrection of the saved to eternal life in heaven and a resurrection of the unsaved to eternal punishment in hell. Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity.
